Creative storytelling ideas

Pray at home bag for 5-11s

A while back we made a bag of creative prayer ideas that parents of children under 5 could borrow to use at home with their children.  We've now put together a bag for 5-11s.  It's intended that the 5-7s will use it with a bit more parental input while the 8-11s will be able to use it more independently!  The contents are cheap and easy to come across (mainly from the pound shop!) and prayer ideas include: prayer bingo game, blessing tower, world prayers, listening to God, prayer requests, play…See More

Story at home bags

We're really trying to get to grips with our ministry to families, how we help parents to explore faith at home and how we engage our 0-5 year olds with prayer and the Bible.  We've been interested in the idea of using story bags to help tell stories, but to buy commercially produced bags was not really within our means!As an experiment we have put together 3 bags for parents to borrow, containing a story book and some items to help explore the story interactively at home. All of the items in…See More

New blog of creative prayer ideas for children

Hi!I just wanted to let you all know that I've recently started a blog of all the ideas we have been using at our church to help the children pray and develop their relationship with God.  It's hopefully a way for our parents to see what we're doing and to access ideas they can use at home.  Equally, I hope that it's useful to anyone working in children's ministry.  If you're interested, please have a look!  The address of the blog is:…See More
